Flight attendants dance to Lady Gaga

Cebu Pacific Airlines, a Philippines-based carrier, devised a plan to liven up the in-flight safety lectures: Have the flight attendants dance to Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. Well, that’s certainly one way to get people to pay attention. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga moves on from meat, steps out in hairy dress

Lady-Gaga-hair-dressSome of us were still reeling from Lady Gaga’s meaty VMA dress, but since it’s been nearly a month and shocking and awing is in her DNA, she’s back with some new fodder. Last night, the pop star made a surprise appearance at New York’s The Oak Room wearing — wait for it — a dress made of strawberry blond hair.

Much like the meat dress, it begs the question: Is it real? And the follow-up question: Does it itch?

The jury’s still out, but what do you think of Gaga’s newest get-up? Her meat dress will be turned into jerky, so what could her hair dress come back as?

'Glee' showdown: Britney vs. Madonna vs. Lady Gaga

brittnay-as-britneyImage Credit: Adam Rose/FoxLast night’s Glee rocked some dead-on Britney Spears recreations, but it wasn’t the slam-dunk I had hoped it would be. Part of me didn’t buy New Directions’ devotion to Spears — aren’t they a liiiitle young for her? “Baby One More Time” would have come out when they were in first grade or so — but mostly, the numbers just didn’t advance, explore, or heighten the storylines.

It didn’t hit like the Madonna episode, which brilliantly wove the songs into the narrative; the “Like a Virgin” number alone would put that episode at the top of my “most awesome” list. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga's meat dress to be made into jerky

lady-gagaImage Credit: David Gabber/PR PhotosLady Gaga made headlines after sporting a meat dress at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Gaga told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres she meant no disrespect to vegans or vegetarians. “It has many interpretations — but for me, this evening, it’s that if we don’t stand up for what we believe in, if we don’t fight for our rights, pretty soon we’re gonna have as much rights as the meat on our bones. AND I am not a piece of meat.”

Okay, so Gaga didn’t entirely clear up the big question marks surrounding that evening’s fashion choice. Nor did she say anything about the future of her raw dress. Lady Gaga probably wouldn’t be caught wearing the same outfit twice, and this isn’t the sort of look that just retires to the back of your closet. (Unless, of course, your closet is some sort of meat-packing plant.)

The designer of the dress, Franc Fernandez, set the record straight when he told the MTV style blog the dress was, in fact, intended to be worn only once. But the now infamous meat garment is not headed for life in a deep freezer. Instead, “the dress will go through a process where it becomes a sort of ‘jerky’ and will be archived,” Fernandez told E!. Yum?

The thought of anyone eating Lady Gaga’s meat dress-turned-jerky grosses me out. Am I the only one? And does this mean there’s a jerky dress in our future? Let’s hope not.

Lady Gaga to launch a fragrance: What should it smell like?

lady-gagaShe’s inspired thousands of her monsters to dress like her. So it’s only natural that Lady Gaga has decided to inspire her fans to smell like her, too — at least that’s what the pop star can hope for with the launch of her first fragrance, due out in spring 2012, according to Women’s Wear Daily. That gives Lady G plenty of time to ponder the scent.

Will she take a cue from her VMA dress and go for notes of bacon and flank steak? Or will her her love for tea cups steer her towards earl grey, mint, and chamomile? Or, in Lady Gaga’s signature everything-has-a-message manner, will it smell like nothing to symbolize the unnecessary masks we wear to hide from our true selves? Only time will tell — and smell.

Would you wear a perfume by Gaga? What do you think it should smell like?

Did VMAs host Chelsea Handler take on an impossible job?

chelsea-handlerImage Credit: Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesCould hosting the VMAs be the most unrewarding job in Hollywood? In light of last night’s questionable performance by E!’s late-night queen Chelsea Handler, I started thinking about how few VMA emcees have been widely lauded for their performances over the years. Just peruse this list of past hosts. Are any of these people — ranging from Bette Midler (yes!) and Dan Akroyd to Dennis Miller (twice!) and Ben Stiller — remembered for doing an exceptionally good job?

Sure, a handful, like Jimmy Fallon and Chris Rock, may be remembered with some level of fondness. But unlike, say, the Oscars or the Emmys — where, for example,  Steve Martin and Neil Patrick Harris have won rave reviews for their respective recent hosting stints — the very nature of the VMAs dictates that the lion’s share of the morning-after buzz will focus on outrageous stunts or musical performances, and not on the host. Handler seemed to be aware of this conundrum last night, and it resulted in an unfortunate “look how craaaazy I can be!” vibe that downplayed her brash intelligence and felt inauthentic to boot.

Ellen grills Lady Gaga about VMAs meat dress

Today’s season premiere of Ellen features a post-VMAs interview between vegan DeGeneres and carnivore-couture spokeswoman Lady Gaga. (Video’s embedded after the break.) PETA has already responded to the “meat dress” designed by Franc Fernandez that Gaga wore to accept the award for Video of the Year by issuing a statement including the rhetorical question: “What’s next: the family cat made into a hat?” Don’t think she won’t take you up on that, activists! Anything is possible.

Lady Gaga’s response to Ellen’s gentle prompt — “What is the purpose of the meat?” — was about as jam-packed with crazy as a Top Round London Broil is crammed with protein and other important nutrients. Behold:

“Well, it’s certainly no disrespect to anyone that’s vegan or vegetarian….I, as you know, am the most judgment-free human being on Earth. However, it has many interpretations — but for me this evening it’s that if we don’t stand up for what we believe in, if we don’t fight for our rights, pretty soon we’re gonna have as much rights as the meat on our bones. AND, [holds up Japanese Vogue, on the cover of which Gaga appeared in a (real) meat bikini], I am not a piece of meat.”


Everyone reluctantly applauded! Then Ellen gifted Gaga a kale bikini (pictured, right). And they all lived happily ever after, except for the animals. READ FULL STORY

New 'Glee' season 2 promo: What dreams are made of

glee-season-2Image Credit: Adam Rose/FoxOh. Em. Glee! Season two of the hit Fox series is just around the corner, and in an effort to toy with my lack of patience promote the show’s Sept. 21 return, Fox released this teaser with Bones‘ Emily Deschanel and Tamara Taylor. Nice use of synergy, guys! But I can forgive the blatant plug for another Fox show, since the new promo appeals to my “Empire State of Mind,” and my inner Full House fan. There’s John Stamos! Who’s not given a chance to say a line! (How rude!) Check it out after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Larry King and Ryan Seacrest duet on 'Poker Face.' Yep, this happened.

I’ll admit it: After approximately 54,684 listens, I was beginning to grow weary of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.” But that was before I heard Larry King and Ryan Seacrest’s rendition of the song on the American Idol host’s radio show Thursday. (How’s that for a dream duet?)

Obviously, I’m awarding Ryan a Simon Cowell-branded “dreadful” for his screechy performance of Gaga’s hit. But I’m going to surprise everyone by inviting Larry to join Randy Jackson’s dawg pound. Because the CNN host definitely did his thang. Even if that “thang” is singing like he was eating a mashed-up bowl of peas. Happy Friday, everyone!


Gagasaurus Rex: Lady Gaga in dino form

Lady Gaga will entertain her Little Monsters at a show in Pittsburgh this weekend. So, naturally, the Art Institute of Pittsburgh decided to pay homage to the star in the form of a…dinosaur? (Click here to take a look.) Yeah, you read that right. A T-Rex to be more specific. (Now, all I can think of is THIS. You’re welcome.)

Anyway, Creation Rex, who lives at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, often chooses his wardrobe in an effort to honor some of the biggest pop culture phenoms of our time, including this Star Wars outfit. (He also carried an Olympic torch during this year’s winter games.) Rex’s newest choice features some Gaga-inspired 13-inch heels, a blonde wig, lipstick, and an illuminated disco stick to boot!
